The Mamiya MSX500 has a few neat tricks that make the camera stand out. First, the camera is spot metered and its m42 lens mounted with open aperture metering system. The metering system runs on a single LR44 button cell battery, power to the meter is controlled by a button mounted into the film advance lever. When the meter is on the film advance lever sits back, while in the on position you can push the lever forward towards the body to do a DOF preview. Turn the meter off, simply pressing the button down, this then allows the lever to return to the home position. Quite a nice double feature for a plain-looking camera.
The camera is in very nice condition, shutter speed fire across the range and light meter respond to changing light levels. I have fitted a new LR44 battery so its good to go.
The f/2 50mm lens is in good working condition, no damage clean aperture blades and snappy selection. The lens has a small outbreak of optical fungus, it will not show on images.


I must point out that for some reason this lens is fitted with the f/1.8 aperture bezel ring not the f/2, strange, could have been missed by factories QA?

The cameras light seals are ok, but you may wish to replace them.

There is dust present in the viewfinder, apart from this the camera is very good for its age. These quality cameras are becoming rare to find in working condition, please check out all images as there part of the description.
Any questions please just ask
Thank You
